Jermaine Jackson

FLIP-FLOPS

I'm Backing Off the Estate

Jermaine Jackson
-- a major ringleader in the Jackson family rebellion against the MJ Estate -- has officially defected from a family letter criticizing the Estate ... but still has "deep reservations" about the executors.

Jermaine just posted a long letter on his Twitter account, writing, "I rescind my signature from the letter which was sent to the Estate, and which should never have gone public."

"I still hold deep reservations about many issues involving the Estate, and I will continue to bring scrutiny and a resolute voice wherever we have cause for concern. But the way to address such matters is through the proper channels and via a private dialogue, not public conflict."

He adds, "In this spirit, I offer this statement by way of extending an olive-branch."

Jermaine follows in the footsteps of his brother Tito, who withdrew his signature last week from the siblings' July 17th letter to the Estate, in which they accused the executors of failing at their job and stressing out Katherine Jackson so badly she suffered a "mini-stroke."

As of now, the signatures of Janet, Rebbie, and Randy remain on the letter.

Wasn't he having his own kids freeload off Katherine Jackson's house? He has a kid he named Jermajesty. He probably has the one he named after his very self too, JerkOff.

Thanks Jules, I still don´t see how filming the kids would accomplish that.

000000000000000000000000
Not surprised, Jules has a big reading comprehension problem, and is missing the point, she did not want to be lumped with Italia, but had no problem to be lumped with rabid pedo supporter like somoto!

Here is the details:
While Janet was talking to Paris, Prince was yelling, I am not a Jackson, I got all your money, wtf are you going to do?
He proceeded with whipping out his genital and yelled, look here, do you see any spots?
Then he turned around and mooned them and yelled do you see the darkest part of my a-hole, any darkness there? or is it all pink??? Here kiss it, kiss it!

It all got on tape by Janet and Jermaine.

Brats, Haha

Randy Jackson Owes Baby Mama Over $500,000 In Child Support

-------------------

Brainless rabids copied and pasted lies!!!!

How is that possible if Jermaine never had a job as child support is in a % of one's income!

And Is there any evidence that the children were Jermaine's and not Randy's who needed to support himself bagging grocery??? Can DNA test tell the difference of one Jackson from the other???


If Rabids had a brain
They would have caught a brain disease and died off!

He needs to shut up. We aren't fools and we can see right through this suck up routine. KJ probably offered them money if they would make nice to the public and help her get the kids back. Notice TJ hasn't had his face plastered all over the place.

Michael Jackson the freak is better off dead, says Rupert Everett


Family, friends, A-listers across the globe and millions of fans are still mourning Michael Jackson's death but actor Rupert Everett, for one, is not.


The star of St Trinian's and My Best Friend's Wedding became the first celebrity to break the taboo on criticising the late singer, whom he described as a 'freak'.


‘I think it was fortuitous that he died,’ he said.


‘He was supposed to be doing 50 concerts in London. It wouldn’t have mattered how good or bad he was.


Jackson’s death, which came just weeks before the former King of Pop was due to begin a 50-date residency at London’s O2 arena, is still shrouded in mystery.


The singer, who died aged 50, suffered a heart attack at his rented California mansion on June 25 and was pronounced dead when he arrived at hospital.


He is understood to have been addicted to a ****tail of prescription drugs, but the results of toxicology tests on his body have not yet been released.


Everett predicts that Jackson’s death could spell the end of modern day celebrity.


‘You cannot divide the music from the person,’ he said.


‘I think his life – and death – is a great lesson. I think we are going to see the end of celebrity as we know it. Showbusiness is not an honest profession.’


The 50-year-old actor likened the extremities of today’s fame to the debauched Versailles court of Marie Antoinette, which sparked the French Revolution.


‘It’s like the last days of Versailles,’ he said. ‘I do wonder how much more bullsh*t people can take about celebrities.’


He added: ‘We’re living in very strange times. We have Michael Jackson, a black man who has gone white, and we have President Barack Obama, who is a half white man gone black. It’s absolutely fascinating to watch.’


But Everett, who is openly gay, confessed that he could understand the attraction people had to Jackson in his heyday.


‘I would have leapt at the chance of sleeping with Michael Jackson when I was 14,’ he joked.


Everett is known for his outspoken nature and controversial remarks.


He has openly spoken about how he worked as a rent boy, to fund his drugs habit, when he was at stage school in London.


He also admitted sending some of his pubic hair to a woman who criticised one of his stage performances.


‘He wouldn’t have managed to do all of them and the press would have destroyed him.’


Everett, who also provided the voice of Prince Charming in the Shrek sequels, compared Jackson to a character in the animated films.

He also claimed it was the 2005 sex abuse charges – which Jackson was cleared of – which killed the singer.


‘He was a freak. He looked like a character from Shrek. He was a black to white minstrel,’ Everett told the Daily Mirror.

‘He was crucified by that court case when he was accused of child molestation – that killed him.

‘He personified the pain and anxiety of a black man in a slave country. We all watched as he changed from black to white. He was living performance art.’

Michael Jacksons Hair


From Afro to On Fire


Michael Jackson’s changing appearance was more evident with regards to his hair than any other body part. Michael's hair and its changing appearance caused constant media speculation, with some critics even guessing that Michael Jackson’s death and the aftermath could be traced back to a freak accident during the filming of a Pepsi commercial that resulted in Michael having a large bald spot. The first of Michael's hair styles was seen with the emergence of the Jackson 5, and was a large Afro. However, in 1984, Michael Jackson was involved in a freak accident while filming a commercial for Pepsi, which many people believe began the cycle of his constantly changing hair styles.


During filming, stage pyrotechnics went off earlier than planned, and Michael Jackson suffered second and third degree burns on his head and face. As a result of this painful accident, Michael Jackson's hair never fully grew back again. He tried having many different types of corrective surgeries, but apparently, nothing worked, not even laser treatments. Experts speculate that his hair follicles were too damaged to grow back.

It could be said that this tragic accident was tied to many of Michael Jackson’s Scandals, as it led him to wear wigs and use hair implants that many said were increasingly further away from his original African-American identity.

After the Pepsi fire, Michael Jackson's hair styles became increasingly straighter and longer than his Jackson 5 Afro. Michael sewed long, soft, straight hair extensions into what little was left into his own hair. He clearly would not have wanted to go bald. Critics claimed that Jackson chose Caucasian-looking hair rather than using more textured implants similar to his own, natural hair because he was ashamed of being African-American.

Over the years, Michael Jackson's hair has taken on many shapes and forms. It has been long and curly, as in the Bad era, and it has been short and part. Prior to his death, it was shoulder-length and very straight. Autopsy results revealed that under his wig, Jackson was nearly completely bald, which suggests that Jackson was wearing a wig out of necessity more than vanity.

He must think people are stupid. He hasn't changed his motives. They are trying to keep Katherine in control of the money.Soon as court hearings are over they will be at it again.

Given the cir***stances of the last two weeks, and in order to protect the children and Mrs. Jackson, the Executors believe that it would not be appropriate to allow the following individuals to enter the residence or its grounds and we instruct the security to preclude the following from entering the residence or the grounds: Randy Jackson and any of his children, Janet Jackson, Rebbie Jackson and any of her children, Jermaine Jackson, his wife and any of his children, Janice Smith, or anyone else who was involved in the recent events that led to Mrs. Jackson’s separation from and inability to communicate with Michael’s children, or any agents or representatives of any of these individuals,” Weitzman wrote.

Could this be reason ????
